PSST… I need a favor.

I can hardly believe it has been one year since I sold my home in Los Osos, CA and moved to Sacramento! I’m starting to feel settled in the Sacramento community. I can now get to Trader Joe’s without my GPS, and when someone says, “I’m in South Sac,” I actually know where they are!

I’ve fallen in love with the rivers, the redwoods, the restaurants, and the people – and the quick access to San Jose, Napa, and San Francisco. The easy-to-navigate Sacramento airport gives me great access to travel to East Coast clients and family, and I live less than 5 minutes from my youngest grandson, Khai. There are just so many great perks for me in living here.

Now I’m eager to expand my business relationships in the Sacramento area, as well, and that’s where I could use your help…

Since 2011 I’ve been able to do so much great work because of you: the people you’ve told about me, the talks you’ve invited me to give at your associations and membership groups, the invitations to come into your company or nonprofit and shine a spotlight on areas where changes have moved you forward, the coaching time we’ve spent together as you uncover ways to move past blocks or barriers to success. And of course, the friends, relatives, business partners, and colleagues you’ve told, “Hey, you’ve got to meet Beth!” plus the amazing support you’ve given my two books. I thank you again for all of that.

So, Here’s the Favor…

Who do you know in the greater Sacramento area – Chico to San Francisco to Monterey to Fresno to Reno – that would benefit from knowing me? Someone who you think of and say, Yes. It would be so great for Beth to meet________.

If you know someone like that, please do me a favor and introduce us!

Here Are Some Easy Ways to Do So:

You know me well enough to know that I won’t hit them with a sales pitch or send all kinds of spam sales messages. I will simply reach out to see if we can grab a coffee or do a phone call to expand the circle of people I know.

Whichever method of introduction you are most comfortable with, know that I am grateful and look forward to meeting the people you know and respect here in the greater Sacramento area—

Forward To A Friend Or Collegue

Do a virtual introduction

Send your friend or colleague an email with a short note saying why you think we should meet. You can also include my website – Add my email address – – to the recipients so we’ll both get the email, and I’ll take it from there!

Tell me how to contact them

If you prefer I do the outreach, simply call me at (916) 480-1234 or email me at with their information. Please let me know if it’s okay for me to use your name when I contact them.

And Here’s How I Can Help Them (And You!)

From our work together, you probably already know that:

You may not have yet heard that I have new programs to help with staff effectiveness and creating a drama-free workplace:

I had a hunch this workshop would be well received, but I had no idea how much. I’ve delivered it to private businesses and also staff from several government agencies, including: California Children’s Protective Services, the Veterans Administration, and the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.

Several organizations have brought me in to improve communication and reduce drama and conflict through this workshop. A few of these include: Executives of California Legal Associations, California Bar Association, Monterey County Bar Association, the Bar Association of San Francisco, Sacramento Area Human Resource Association, Summit Funding, and Case Management Society of America.

An office technician from the State of California Employment Development Department said this about my Navigating Challenging Dialogue workshop–

“I want to thank you again for the amazing class! I got so much out of it. I have many ‘gold nugget’ notes from the class! Not a white space left on my pages! I loved that you incorporated different modalities including my favorites, Brené Brown and Byron Katie.”

And thanks to some amazing work I’ve done with my business coach, Michele Woodward, I’ve introduced several new tools into the work I do with clients, including instruments like DiSC, VIA Character Strengths, and other assessments and inventories. Many clients are benefiting from workshops that complement these great tools, such as 5 Dysfunctions of a Team and The Work of Leaders.

Can You Help Me Out?

Who do you know that I would enjoy knowing? Is there someone that would benefit from the services I provide? Or someone who can help me reach people in this region? Please connect me with them.

I’m looking forward to a busy fall and can’t want to grow my business relationships with more amazing people who are just like YOU!

Have you had to work with that person who is too valuable to fire, but whose communication and leadership style continually makes others cringe and puts the company at risk? Beth Wonson’s unique combination of experience as a business expert, non-profit leader, 20 years consulting on team development, organizational change, and coaching leadership make her the go-to person for transforming personnel liabilities into personnel assets. “In my experience, no one truly wants to be the company bully, they just aren’t self-aware enough climb out of it. Their increasing isolation causes more and more drama within the organization. Human Resource staff feel powerless and over time, team members and colleagues choose to leave the organization. The remedy is simply to get this person the right coach. The coach who knows how to give them the hard feedback and will stand in the fire with them through the change process”.
